Well, the last week i make some repairs such as replace of all universal joints (front and rear drive shaft) all wheel bearing's (in the rear axle the bearings for change was the stock bearings, in use for 23 years, i´m take some pictures from scratch parts removed, looks very uggly jejejejejejeeje). Plans for the princess? yes, starting from a total engine rebuild (the engine are in stock condition after 408.600 kilometers, but she still has enough power to move across very dirty roads) and some wiring replacements (this is the only troubles i have with, to much electrical problems to solve, however all electrical systems are working at day, remenber, she are a 23 years old, and the previous owner never spent in maintenance of this systems. he said me that before i buy it... :-S ) Other projects include a total repaint work, replace of rear leaf springs, climb 1", put Firestone Firehawk RMT 31X10 1/2 tires with realingment of upper control arms in front suspenssion, and a winch in front. Other pics of my ride...
